I have WS-C3650-24PWD-S Switch. I put "cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.03.08.SPA.bin" to the flash unfortunately I am unable to install it.
What is right command to be used to install it and so that the switch can boot to this new IoS?
Remember, The switch is currently running 16.6.5 and I want to downgrade it to 16.3.8.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The easiest way is to boot the 3850 into BUNDLE mode using the .bin file you have on flash.
Firstly you need to ensure you have copied the .bin file to all of the switches, then issue the following commands:
no boot system boot system switch all flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.03.08.SPA.bin
Hi Seb Rupik;
Thank you for your response.
Do I need to enter in Global Configuration mode to use this command: boot system switch all flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.03.08.SPA.bin because the switch is not accepting this command in Privileged EXEC Mode
There is another command (in Privileged EXEC Mode):
Switch# request platform software package install switch all file flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.03.08.SPA.bin new auto-copy
What is the difference between those two commands?
The boot system commands must be entered in configuration mode.
The commands I am suggesting are frankly the ones with the least number of pitfalls and will place the switch in BUNDLE mode. The second request platform command will place the switch in INSTALL mode which is the preferred state. Follow the links provided by @Mark Malone
